Waveland, Mississippi Mayor is First in State to Declare Support for Marriage Equality
David Garcia, the mayor of the small Mississippi Gulf Coast city of Waveland, has become the first mayor in the state to publicly support marriage equality.
Said Garcia in a Freedom to Marry press release:
“We know many people in loving and committed same-sex relationships who are active participants in improving our communities and we’ve seen how important marriage has been for them and their families. Because I believe in fairness for all American families, I support the freedom to marry for same-sex couples willing to take on that commitment.”
In May, Garcia helped get the city to pass a LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination ordinance.
